Will a 4-stroke, 49cc engine make it a pleasant ride or will it just be extra weight? Does anyone have any insight? I plan on mounting it in-frame on an aluminum mountain bike.

Thanks in advance,
I weigh 220# Ride a basically stock 66cc HT (mounted on a cruiser) and can climb to the top of Oak Mountain without any problem, a climb in excess of 900' WITHOUT peddling. Be careful with aluminum frames, they tend to crack. Front gate to the top is about 6 miles. Great ride, and some roads have quite a bit of a incline.
Looking for HT's parts?
